McDonalds China IIS 5 Server defaced

A McDonalds IIS server was defaced by a Chinese hacker angry that Taiwan was listed as a separate country on their server. They were lucky that is all they did. The server reports it is a Windows 2000 server running IIS 5 so I'd be curious as to what the administrators missed that this defacement was possible.

www.mcdonalds.com.cn is the domain.
